Velvet, Red, and Paleo Cranberry Sauce

We’ve finally come to the last of my weekend outfits, looks like I’m going to have to get dressed tomorrow now!

Sunday we headed over to our friend’s Jed and Lorena’s to finally have a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Since we missed the holiday while in Ecuador, we decided to get together and make Thanksgiving happen anyhow – better late than never!

Wanting to wear something festive, but comfortable, I decided to wear my red dolman sleeve sweater that hides whatever you need, along with my black velvet skinnies again. I finished off with t-strap pumps and of course a sparkly statement necklace.

We all brought something along for the event, and I was in charge of cranberry sauce. Most are full of sugar, but you know I had to find something even better! I lucked out with this wonderful recipe that involves boiling the cranberries in orange juice and sweetening with a little maple syrup and spices. Only thing I did different was double the recipe and add a few drops of liquid stevia at the end to taste. Keep in mind for next year or if you do turkey for Christmas dinner. Everyone loved it! (sorry for the less than stellar pic)

Great ideas for styling velvet skinnies. I just got some at Loft. I LOVE your necklace, too! I might have to try that cranberry recipe for Christmas. Thanks for sharing!


Oh my gosh I want those velvet skinnies! They are beautiful!

Looks like a fun meal! And I adore cranberry sauce. And cranberry muffins, and cranberry bread, you get the idea. 🙂 Aren’t dolman sleeve tops just fun.
